film color preset?

hi. first time poster. love the forum here.

i'm wondering if anyone can tell me what color preset may have been used in this clip? i'm pretty sure it's some cinematic preset and not color correction on the clips. but i might be wrong. any ideas? thanks.

Cinematic presets are VERY RARELY used, if at all, in most professional video. Shot by shot color correction is done by trained professionals. And has to be as the varying lighting conditions of this project alone are demanding. You might have someone even out the shots and make them match, and then create a look that they then apply to all. But rarely does one just put a preset on footage and call it a day.

Not trying to be snarky or elitist, but presets are rarely used. And if they are used (I've used them when starting out grading)...the shots are first balanced so they matched, as I stated. And then I added a preset. MANY MANY companies make these...Red Giant, Sapphire, Boris...many more.

It can't be explained...sorry. I don't know what you have to start with...where you need to work from. And even then, that means that I'd have to attempt to do it, and then explain the process. Coloring like that is a lot of fiddling with knobs and balls in various directions to see what works. You have colors in those directions, so you know where you are pushing them, but to explain where to push, how much...without seeing the source...very difficult.

Might need to read up on color correction theory and do a couple tutorials and then try yourself, or hire someone.

hmmm, i didn't see much in here. they lowered contrast and saturation. maybe tinted red towards pink. how is this a preset?
